Rhonda Santifer, M.Min.
CEO, Celebrate Life Cancer Ministries
Co-Director, Southern Los Angeles Patient Navigation and Wellness Center
Pastor Rhonda Holbert Santifer, M.Min. began Celebrate Life Cancer Ministry in December 2002 as a result of surviving breast cancer. Pastor Rhonda began her experience with cancer on September 11, 2001 – yes 9/11, the same day the United States and the world was turned upside down. The diagnosis of breast cancer was delivered October 1, 2001. It was a long, challenging experience and it was not an easy process. After two surgeries, ten rounds of chemotherapy, and 25 days of radiation treatment- one year of treatment had come to an end. With God, the greatest family support system which included her mom, the hospital posse and a special friend (now husband), Pastor Rhonda was able to maintain her faith and positive attitude.
